Kia Center earned a LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for its sustainable design and construction methods. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) designation is the nationally-accepted benchmark for green buildings. The LEED rating system is based on a point system that measures the impact on the environment and those who use the building. Among the arena's sustainable features are the diversion of more than 8,000 tons of construction waste from landfills, water reduction of at least 1.3 million gallons through the use of low-flow fixtures and faucets, using more than 20% recycled materials in construction and collecting rainwater from the roof and condensate water from the chiller equipment into a 5,000-gallon cistern for site irrigation.

Kia Center strictly prohibits the use of tobacco and smoking inside the arena. The designated smoking area for Orlando Magic games is the Magic Grill. For all other events, the smoking area is expanded to include The ULTRA Lounge.
